A vacant Virginia house is a total loss after a "suspicious" fire Sunday evening.

The Virginia Fire Department and more than a half-dozen area fire departments responded to a fire reported at 117 Third St. N. at 7:43 p.m., Virginia Fire Marshal Chris Clark told the News Tribune on Monday morning. Crews remained on the scene until about 1 a.m.

It's the second time crews have responded to a fire at the vacant home in the last month. The department is investigating the cause, Clark said.

"It's definitely a suspicious fire," Clark said.

There were no injuries reported and a monetary damage figure is being determined, Clark said.
